Winter weather warning causing icy conditions

A winter weather advisory brings icy, slick conditions to the Omaha area Thursday

Well, up north, we got a quick shot that left most of the subway lines dusted. On top of that layer of ice from that freezing drizzle we had all afternoon and into the evening. Very nice conditions, the name of the game this morning, in addition to being extremely cold, a wind chill warning just west of the metro, where we can see temperatures drop to 20 to 30 below zero this morning. Omaha is not included in this, but we will see several hours with a wind chill around 15 below zero this morning. So, the cold heat wave comes from west to east, which is why we have air temperatures near zero. Columbus, Norfolk, New York and still in their 20s. To the east. Omaha. We have dropped 15 degrees in the past three hours. Look at the wind now. Feels like 11 below. Stepping outside, 20 blown. Columbus, 21 below in New York and still descending this morning. Sustained winds range from 15 to 25 mph. We’re seeing 30, 35 mile winds are the strongest winds this morning, but we’ll still be breezy all day with these guys coming in from the northwest, 20 to 30 miles an hour or so. I wouldn’t really see much improvement in that. It looks like a section from morning to afternoon. So, we have influential icons and kids heading out. Need all winter gear. It feels like you’re leaving again at around 15 below zero plus there may be cool spots on the roads. The streets of these neighborhoods will probably be a little smoother, and any sidewalk or parking lot that isn’t treated could serve as an ice rink with that layer of ice we had yesterday. So, keep that in mind if you’re outside this morning or afternoon, and you’re still expecting the wind chill to be near or below zero. So your temperature won’t rise much today. This is a look down 10th Street at what is now the Old Market. You see the flag flying now. There will probably be more stains on those sidewalks than there are on 10th Street right now. So, again, give yourself a little extra time, especially if you park outside. You will probably have a layer of ice. You’ll have to get rid of it before you head out. Therefore some fluctuations in EPPLEY have been reported. The temperature is up to eight degrees now, with the northwest wind feeling like 11 degrees below. So the snow moves north and the clouds actually clear. So we’re going to see some sunshine. This is a positive day. We can see all the heavy snow rolling through the Twin Cities here this morning. A quieter return to the west, at least with any rain. But again, this cold is pouring in. So, as we head through the morning towards lunchtime, once again, the sun is rising, that’s the positive. It’s still pretty cold. The wind cools by noon, still around five, maybe even ten below zero. Afternoon highs in the mid-teens are still near or below zero with cold winds blowing through the night, and we will see an increase in clouds. We’re watching tomorrow, but this still suggests trying to shake off small, light snow flurries in the morning, so the area near and west of the Omaha metro could pick up a quick dusting. But not everyone will see it. In the afternoon, we’ll start to see some clouds drifting toward our south. But it rises when we reach the lows to the mid-20s. Very cold week. We’ll still have the iconic impact of that opportunity to get a little light in the morning and wind chills tomorrow at minus 15 degrees. But check for a weekend warmup in the mid 40s Saturday through Sunday the 50th and then more impactful weather for the possibility of some showers and storms Sunday evening and overnight rain lasting into Monday.
